Bacon Cheese Potatoes...

The other day I mentioned on my Walking on Sunshine Facebook page that I was trying a new recipe for dinner that I found HERE.  I was pretty excited about it and shared with everyone a picture as a tease for today's post.

AND a lot of my friends and followers started getting excited as well.  And I'm still pretty excited because it turned out really good.  Actually better than good.

And it was so easy...And you make these potatoes in your CROCK POT.


Bacon Cheese Potatoes...







Bacon Cheese Potatoes

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 pound bacon, diced
  • 2 medium onions, sliced (I omitted) 
  • 4 medium red potatoes thinly sliced 
  • 1/2 pound grated cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • butter (I used 2 tbs.)
  • green onions, optional
Note:  You can either pre-cook your bacon or put it in raw.  I have tried it both ways and like it better pre-cooked.  I always cook my bacon in the oven...less mess!  

Directions:

Begin by lining your crock pot with aluminum foil.
(I sprayed my crock pot with a non-stick cooking spray and then sprayed the aluminum foil).
Slice and the potatoes.
Dice the bacon, if you are adding it raw, OR dice the pre-cooked bacon.  
Start layering everything in the crock pot, beginning with the potatoes, then the bacon and cheese, sprinkling with salt and pepper; I was able to get three layers.
Dot the top layer with the 2 tbs. of butter.
Cover with another piece of foil AND THEN THE CROCK POT LID and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
My crock pot cooks really fast and I always check after a few hours and if the potatoes are fork tender, I know they're ready.

Transfer the potatoes from the crock pot to a serving dish, top with fresh parsley or chopped green onions and get ready to enjoy the most DELICIOUS potato casserole ever...



I was really skeptical with this recipe.  I did not think it would work, silly me...obviously we enjoyed the potatoes and I will be making this again soon.  I can see making this for a large group of people.

So EASY and so DELICIOUS.  It doesn't get any better than that!  


Enjoy your day!

  10. This looks perfect...I adore using my crockpot...love having a meal ready at the end of the day when I'm about ready to drop.
    Supper is my most difficult meal; I'm always exhausted and settle for a PB&J sandwich or cheese & cracker.

  11. Lois,

    Just how did you know that I was looking for a new side dish? Imagine these with BBQ spareribs!?! I read a recipe yesterday for a rub for meat and I plan on trying it tommorrow and grilling the pork.
    Favorite piece of clothing - I have white knit legging pants that I have had for nearly ten years. They are awesome and unless they become unwearable I am NOT getting rid of them. They are light weight and thin and feel like you are wearing nearly nothing but your legs don't get cold and they don't bind and or pinch and I can sleep in them and wear them around to house (only) to do chores or watch TV or... My daughter likes them also and it is becoming a battle as to who gets them first.
    Love the hand sanitizer sign and want to make one for the restroom at church.
    Hope all is well and you are finally rid of what ever your stomache problem was.

  23. This recipe looks so interesting and isn’t your run of the mill potato recipe. And how can you go wrong with cheese and bacon! That’s exactly what I’m looking for in my Link Party that just opened a few minutes ago. This week on Future Expat’s Required Ingredient Link Party, we are featuring potato recipes. I hope you’ll come link up this one and any others you think others will like!
